In Honor Of Lance Corporal Ryan Winslow

Our son, Lance Corporal Ryan Winslow, graduated from Parris Island in May of 2005. He was
always service oriented and had the lifetime goal of becoming a police officer. He felt the best
training he could receive would be obtained by serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. After 1 year of
taking criminal justice classes at a community college, he enlisted .  After basic training, then
combat training, he was selected to be trained as a TOW gunner.  These men were assigned to the
Scout Platoon, 2nd Tanks, Camp Lejeune. Ryan looked forward to deployment. He felt well trained
and confident. The men he served with were the best in the Marine Corps.  He was so proud of his
platoon, and that he was a Marine.  Ryan deployed on 3/25/06, and was working in the Al Anbar
Province, Iraq when his humvee encountered an IED on 4/15/06. Ryan, our hero, and 2 other brave
young men died that day. We thank all of these men and women for their courageous service. As
Christians, we know that we will see Ryan again one day, and thank God for this blessing, as well as
the wonderful 19 years we had with Ryan.
